You do not know me but I wrote this open letter to the Anus of Satan recently.
What I had initially thought to be just mindless scribbling on a motion sickness bag turned out to be a once in a lifetime experience – and it was all because of you.
So here I am, writing this letter to thank you personally.
Thank you so much for taking the time out of the whirlwind of your life to send me messages brimful of kindness and concern. Thank you for linking me back to all the news articles in your home country and tuning in for my interviews.
Thank you for wanting to read more of my work. You have been so supportive and encouraging of my writing and I am truly, truly beyond blessed for all the love that I have received.
The letter may have brought you here – but thank you for staying.
I thought you’d like to know that my physiotherapy is going well and the lower half of my body is on its way to being functional again. If you’d sent me a marriage proposal, I will get back to you at the soonest!
It was so nice of you to stand up for me against the hateful comments and Internet trolls.
Your kindness moves me.
If my letter had left a bad after-taste, I really do apologize. Please drop me an email and I would be more than happy to share my therapist’s contact details.
I wrote the letter with the hopes that it would make someone’s day. If you had laughed out loud or sniffled a chuckle at work, that is encouragement enough for me to continue writing.
Going viral was just the icing on the cake.
I hope that all your future flights would be more pleasant than mine, and that you are spared from ever encountering the Anus of Satan.
And in the unfortunate event that you do, I hope that you would be gracious and kind, and find it within yourself to laugh about it.
A word of advice though – I would keep that motion sickness bag close by.
